HR 131 'Loch Shin' & HR 127 'Loch Garry'

The last class of locomotive designed for the Highland Railway by David Jones was the 4-4-0 'Loch' class. Fifteen were built by Dübs & Co. in Glasgow in 1896 and a further three, with minor alterations, were produced by the North British Locomotive Company in 1917. The first batch was numbered 119 to 133 with the later engines numbered 70 to 72. They were intended to work on express passenger services and all passed into LMS ownership in 1923.

This photograph shows HR 131 'Loch Shin' and HR 127 'Loch Garry'. 'Loch Shin' was numbered 14391 by the LMS and continued in service until being withdrawn in August 1941. It was then used as a bombing target for the RAF at Shoeburyness in Essex.

'Loch Garry' was numbered 14387 and was withdrawn in December 1930.
